Blix casts doubt on WMD

Blix casts doubt on WMDs

Agencies
Friday May 23, 2003

The chief UN weapons inspector, Hans Blix, said he was starting to suspect Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction in advance of the war on Iraq, a German newspaper reported today.

"I am obviously very interested in the question of whether or not there were weapons of mass destruction, and I am beginning to suspect there possibly were none," Mr Blix told the Berlin daily Der Tagesspiegel.

If that were the case, he said, Iraq's evasive behaviour in recent years could be due to Saddam Hussein's fixation with Iraqi honour and a wish to dictate the conditions under which people could enter the country.

"For that reason, he said 'no' in many situations and gave the impression he was hiding something," he said.

Mr Blix pointed to statements by Lt Gen Amer al-Saadi, who officials say led Iraq's unconventional weapons programmes and surrendered to US-led forces last month.

"The fact that al-Saadi surrendered and said there were no weapons of mass destruction has led to me to ask myself whether there actually were any," Mr Blix told the paper. "I don't see why he would still be afraid of the regime, and other leading figures have said the same."

The US based its war on Iraq on claims the country was hiding weapons of mass destruction and had active programmes to produce more. UN inspectors had not found stocks of chemical or biological weapons by the time they were forced to leave the country on the eve of the US-led attack.

Washington is carrying out inspections of its own, which have so far failed to turn up evidence of WMD stocks.

No liberation of poor iraqis from the evil saddam, who would stop at nothing to kill as many people as he can.
